. louis. the pact well champion state of oklahoma state and cal and u.n.l.v. at the winning teams from today well advanced to the next round of play here h-p pavilion on saturday. i got a chance to speak with their representative to tell me what makes these games special. >> a unique opportunity for her fans to see this. usually you have to travel hours to get to ever been in the team plays and. even hopping your car and travel 45 minutes to watch a team play in march madness. >> caltrans really lucked out today. tickets are still available for that game. it is a game that is a little unusual in the sense that the committee is giving the lower see the advantage. today's game is a little more important than the one they played several months ago. >> everybody is filling up their brackets, president obama picked. >> i felt out but i think miami and i've always been wrong in these banks. >> you are just all with no skill. seven 07 a.m. and we will be back and a couple of minutes. china is moving well on the salmon's a abridge. been waiting for the price of mattresses to fall? then hurry,
viewed as contentious visits by iran's president to new york. the visits to the u.n. were often laced with intrigue and tension and one had an errant gunshot mixed in. according to a new book that tells of an incident in new york involving iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad. the book said it happened in 20 2006. but the author now acknowledges it was in 2007. the book says when u.s. secret service personnel were standing by in or near their vehicles at a staging area in new york, a secret service agent in an apparent accident discharged his shotgun as iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad was loading his motorcade. no one was hurt and co-author mark said ahmadinejad didn't come close to getting hit with the bullet. but -- >> my understanding is from the bush administration officials, who looked into it at the time, is that ahmadinejad was aware of it. certainly heard the shot. and, you know, was surprised by it. but kind of looked asconce a little bit anded walked and got into his car. >> reporter: he said iranian security personnel were nearby as well and noticed it. he says that'
at the u.n. last fall. iran maintains its nuclear program is solely for peaceful energy production. as the arab uprisings convulse the president viewed a missile battery of the iron dome defense system-- heavily financed by the u.s., which knocked scores of rockets from the sky during brief november war with gaza. the president's remarks heavy with allusions to millenia of jewish history in the holy land and a nod to the broad purposes of his trip. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> warner: he was referring to another focus of this visit: to listen to what israeli and palestinian leaders say they're willing to do to revive the stalled peace process between them. later at a press conference at the prime minister's jerusalem residence, the president was asked about yesterday's possible chemical weapons attack in northern
that it wasn't, when the people who were watching this knew it was a terrorist attack. >>anna: u.n. ambassador susan rice blamed the deadly attack on a video. the f.b.i. investigating how a man was able to pose as a pilot and gain ablg ses to the -- access to a u.s. airways cockpit flight in philadelphia. the man had on an air france uniform and i.d. and ended up in the jump seat behind the captain. he was caught when he failed to show real credentials. the airlines says no passengers were ever in danger. those are your headlines this friday morning. >>steve: meanwhile president obama on his way now to bethlehem. he visited israel's memorial to the holocaust victims a short time ago during the third day of his first presidential trip to israel. >>brian: we're live in jerusalem following the trip. hey, leland. >> good morning, brian. the issue from the president is not so much what he's saying. he's saying the same thing in terms of the substantive issues about iran and about a palestinian state. but more about how he is saying it. he's going out of his way to show great empathy towards the isr
, we're on the highway. the israelis are ice rated. we went to the u.n. we'll go to the international criminal court. i feel they think there's no reason to compromise. i feel the open sesame is just to get the basics. if the president can get the palestinians and the israelis to talk about two states for two people it might sound like a cliche but i think it's the one thing that could have an impact on this because it deals with... does each side recognize that they are palestinian and jewish nationalists movements? the israelis are willing to do it but the palestinians are not. >> brown: we're going to focus tomorrow specifically on the palestinians. i'm wondering on the israeli side, is it fair to say that their real focus now as a security issue is much more on iran than on palestinian relations? >> iran i think in the exit polls only rated 10% of the people said that it was the top priority in the israeli election. it really didn't play in the election campaign. i think it does remain a threat, an existential threat. as the president said it's a year away before they get the bomb
with him that says, you know if you want to continue to go down the u.n. road, if you want to continue to go down the route of moving on the international organizations that's not a road that's going to lead anywhere. let's focus on a road that has the potential to lead somewhere. you know i didn't mention on the israeli side, i said there was a convergence on syria but there will certainly be a private discussion on syria and israel. there will be a private discussion with abu mazen on syria as well. you have 400,000 palestinians who are in syria and who are in a very vulnerable position and it's hard to imagine even if that is not much of a public dimension for the conversation it is hard to imagine that will not be part of the private conversation. sure there will be a focus on the peace issue but there will also be a focus on this and what if anything we in the international community could be doing to somehow safeguard those palestinians who are there. i would say with jordan you're also going to have a public and private dimension. first of all just being there sends a signal of
to balance the scale. at this point, abbas has a u.n. resolution, about the only thing he has in his camp. he has no -- he's become a dependency, dependent upon foreign aid to sustain an ever-dwindling authority. they have become a police force governing the terrorists. allen, let me finish. they have become a police force governing the territories. but they've gotten no payment back. and this issue is bigger than the west bank. it's about palestinian nationhood, about the right of palestinians to have the same respect as a nation that israel demands for itself. and frankly, that's not on the table. i would say to you that what the u.s. has to do, when the president is done with this trip, come back, hopefully earning the confidence of the israeli people, trying to restore some confidence on the palestinian side, which is lost right now. and then refashion a middle east peace initiative that gives some hope to both sides. right now palestinians don't feel hope at all. >> okay. let me ask you both very quickly and i'll start with you, james zogby, very quickly, if i may. are you optimistic wit
here. we just learned that u.n. chief moon says the u.n. will conduct an investigation into the alleged chemical weapons use in syria. earlier this week syrian government and rebels accused each other of launching a deadly chemical attack, but there is no confirmation of those allegations. if true, it would be the first use of such weapons in the conflict. as the president said in israel yesterday, the use of chemical weapons is a game-changer. >>> the pentagon is considering plans for $150 million overhaul of the guantanamo bay detention facility. according to facilities, the multimillion dollar plan would include building a new dining hall, hospital and barracks for the guards. the proposal comes amid mounting signs of frustration from gitmo detainees. u.s. military officials confirm that the number of hunger strikes have tripled over the last two weeks from seven to 25. officials say no lives are in danger, but do acknowledge detainees are growing more frustrated. >> the detainees had -- and their attorneys presumably had great hope that the facility would be closed. and they were pa
in the u.n. or the international criminal court. >> we'll see whacomes out. and then john kerry is going to follow up on this. but i suspect that from the way that the wording is coming out there may be a softening of positions on both sides on this in terms of settlement. a restraining settlement activity. >> rose: and palestinian initiatives in the u.n.. >> right. >> rose: okay. the last one is empower secretary of state kerry. >> he hasn't done that yet. he really needs to do it because he's given this speech which has raised expectations sky-high about what the united states is going to do in the peace process. and if he doesn't back kerry up, because kerry is the one that is going to be doing it, kerry won't be able to succeed. >> my guess is knowing secretary kerry and knowing secretary clinton, that secretary kerry will give this because he passionately is interested in this more tension, individually on his own, than secretary clinton. >> he says it that the time, sorry, that the time for middlest envoy is over. >> he is a secretary that is widely prceived as being verylose to th
of state. >> absolutely. it echoed something that she said at the u.n. gay rights is human rights. this is a big moment this week, two big cases. a moment for the country to finally get on the right side of history. dr. king said that the history of to world is long but it always bends toward justice. a moment to look at the proposition 8 in california, and to declare it unconstitutional and also to repeal doma. these are two big cases. and it's going to have a major impact. >> terry, you cover the supreme court for us. it seems to put two justices especially in an interesting position, justice kennedy, the traditional swing vote for the justices. but maybe, even more chief justice john roberts, 58 years old, likely to be chief justice for a long time. you see how support for gay marriage has surged in the last year. even if he personally may be against it, he's likely to look and see, 10, 15 years, still sitting on the bench, it's going to be 70% support in the country. >> there's an institutional challenge to the court in the astonishing speed that the country has changed its mi
that netanyahu got something good for this. what he essentially did is apologize for defending israel. the u.n. of all places passed a report, put out a report saying that israel was justified in self-defense and they were justified in in. >> chris: three years ago a turkish ship with people and aid activists tried to breach the israeli block kade of gaza to bring supplies to the palestinians in gaza and the israelis raided it and ended up killing nine of the people. >> that was not just peace and humanitarian people. they had weapons and attacked threw israeli soldeddiers into the sea. the u.n. issued a report saying israel had a right to defend itself and maintain that block kade. now, the president leaned on israel to issue some type of apology. did they get something in return? i hope so. otherwise it looks like obama is leaning on the israelis. bad signal to the rest of the region. >> chris: with all of the focus on syria and iran there was relatively little talk about the prospects for a peace deal between the israelis and palestinians but the president did address it in this speech in j

to be quiet. that's a quote by the white house. that's what former u.n. ambassador john bolton is talking about this morning. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal. they were not made available to congress or others finding out what happened dha. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a cover up. they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal terrorist groups were present in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of it is to allow these people to talk to members of congress to tell them what happened to them on the day of the attack and if they feel indim dated if they are being withheld from congress that is only going to continue. the question in other people's minds, is this a cover up, is it not. >> ranking member of the community a democrat is also talking saying everything is being done to find out the truth. >>> right now there's an investigation going on. what happened in benghazi is a terrible situation when americans loss the

for statehood at the u.n. the white house officials say the president will not try to broker a deal between israelis and palestinians on this trip. this trip is just going, air force one landing in tel aviv less than two hours ago and the israeli president and prime minister binyamin netanyahu met president obama at the airport. lots of handshaking and photo ops and a friendly scene but polls show president obama is deeply unpopular with many israelis and they want reassurances the united states is serious about their defense. here is what the president said just moments ago. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous. >> thank you, mr. president. thank you, america. thank you for what you are. thank you for what you do. >> he wants president obama to feel at home on this trip. a side note to a serious trip, the israeli embassy released this cartoon video of the meeting set to the golden girl's theme song and the lyrics say "than
where the president stood at the u.n. where he advocated to not recognize palestine as an independent state there is room for grievance. let me ask you, jane where is there room for hope? >> well, americans i think we really are the people who bring hope to a region who are locked in this. i agree that the continued settlement growth is a tremendous obstacle. i think it makes life difficult for the palestinians, and i think it makes life difficult for the israelis in terms of what it does to the israeli soul. but i do think that people much smarter in geography than i am have figured out in fact, it is possible still maybe the window is closing but it is possible to carve out a viable palestine state that will require a lot of resettlement by israelis unless they want to live there, and one hopes that just as 20% of israelis are arabs, there might be jews who would be willing with regard to a new palestinian state. however, that window is closing no doubt about it with the rate that the bitter rates are happening and settlement growth is occurring there is an urgency now upon the lead
line? last september at the u.n. netanyahu said it was spring or summer, that deadline is approaching, what happens there? >> there's a gulf between what the prime minister articulated was the red line and the president said we have a year. so that is where i think a lot of discussions that are happening now will crackcracklet is the difference, and what they will discuss. he said don't worry to israel leaders, as martin said and the president said, i have your back, even if you do not believe you have the capabilities to deal with iran crossing what you perceive as your red line, we have the capability. and the prime minister preempted that, and he said united states is a great friend and mr. president, you are a great friend, but even to great friends we cannot trust the fate of our security. >> this is a coming together. so things are a little better. syria, president obama said today, use of chemical weapons in syria would be quote unquota game changer and i have to believe he is serious about that. >> what is your take on it? >> to comment on dan and iran, i think it's important,
, they backed u.n. diplomacy. then they bet on moscow to play a constructive role. predictably, none of this has worked. >> reporter: here in israel today netanyahu's new intelligence minister said, it is apparently clear chemical weapons were used in syria. the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee said he believes chemical weapons were used by the regime with a caveat. >> there is a high probability that a chemical agent was used. again, i would like to see forensic evidence. >> reporter: the u.s. ambassador to syria is in this -- in the sea has been shuttered for more than a year pays on the question of chemical weapons. >> i cannot tell you what happened. i can tell you that we have a large team of people working on it right now. >> reporter: raising the stakes by saying the syrian regime has lost control the border with turkey. meanwhile, in jordan where the president will visit on friday, they are bracing not only for a potential refugee crisis, but also the possibility of assyrian civil war spreading across there border. lou: thank you. ed henry, fox news chief white hou
, the former u.n. ambassador, slammed president obama for being hostile towards israel. look at this. >> i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostile president that america has had since the formation of israel in 1948. >> the most hostile president since 1948 when israel was formed yet we find today, as jim just said, he and netanyahu have met ten times. the highest civilian award given to any civilian is going to be presented to him by perez, the president of israel. >> right. and this goes back to when president obama was running in 2008 and many on the right, from sarah palin on, characterized him as very close to a terrorist. it was all of this insid situation that he's really a muslim, lying about his muslim faith, because of the identity of his father, that he was from kenya, that he was a marxist, and that characterization is carried overall the way up until today. the right wing, for political expediency, constantly tries to portray this president. and by the way, netanyahu has not exactly walked away from i plaing to the american right wing for his own political pu
access. reporter: unfetters access. a key phrase, we know too well how the security force have treated u.n. personnel on the ground it's a difficult question whether they will get that necessary unfettered access. >> shepard: are you concerned with the war spreading with fighting close to golan heights? >> the golan heights has been a bone of convention and now we're hearing reports of fighting close to what israel considers its border on the golan heights, that disputed territory. that's significant as well because as far as we are aware, from all the intelligence report wes have seen, the syrian rebels fighting in that area are less committed to the democratic government and the overthrow of president assad and more likely they're members of some of she islamic extremist groups who are fighting in syria. that, of course, is of great concern to israel when it's so close to their territory. >> shepard: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. put yourself in their shoes. those words from president obama to the israelis, talking about the treatment of palestinians who live in the west bank. on d
had 20 years of direct dialogue. it's never happened. the key for the u.n. so critical for palestinians is they could take their state hood to the international criminal court and get a directive on the international human rights issue and preoccupation an president obama said no. >> given what the professor has indicated, do you think there's any possibility obama makes any progress. if all the conditions ex-exist for successful negotiations for peace, does it bolster israelis there and america sympathizers with israel and also want to see a broader push for palestinian rights to be acknowledged? >> i think what we saw today was, yes, this remains a key item on the president's foreign agenda. there were real questions whether he would weigh in on this. the answer is, yes. there are a number of questions given the breakdown and trust that occurred between israelis and palestinians in the past few years. the palestinian authority is in dire need of support, seen its credibility wane with its own people in relation to hamas. what will happen is secretary kerry will look f
and the pelestinians. while he hopes u.s. and u.n. sanctions would lead it to cooperate and open its nuclear facilities he's not taking any option off the table. today when a reporter asked president obama if he's prepared to deal with a fall out of a military strike, he repeated the best solution of the situation is through diplomacy. >>> oakland city council president says she's working on a way to censer. the congress members deny any wrong doing. >>> another high tech start up hits it big on the stock market. still ahead. >> back here in just 10 minutes, no clouds out there now. it's kind of windy. we have winds gusts up to 35 miles per hour. the weekend is here. how much warmer can it get in the neighborhood back here in 10. >>> we're checking breaking news in san bruno. that's where police are checking on a report of a suspicious package. police say they received a warning. that school is located at 3200 college drive in san bruno. we're sending news chopper 2 to that area. we know that the entire college has been evacuated. the school was closed as of 4:00 p.m. there's an announcement on the sc
americans. i really don't think obama went over there to broker any peace deals. netanyahu went to the u.n. and he laid out the time line. he mentioned it was this spring. >> sean: red line? >> he is playing catch-up and for the president to be doing that is embarrassing. he is icing words through weakness. he is not using peace through strength. >> sean: national security for oil. look at north dakota, 3% unemployment. >> i think that obama did something, two good things. one, is to publicly recognize the jewish state and the roots of the jews and religion which was important for the rest of the world. >> sean: is that really so good? >> so for him to say that, it was a good things. and now, he wants the palestinians to recognize the jewish state. this is not going to happen. >> sean: i wanted to get your reaction? >> i spent a good amount of time in israel just over a month ago talking with their ministers and talking with the people. they are guarded. that is the only way i can say. they are guarded about american leadership and they understand our culture. we talk about the red line an
a speech to the u.n. on wmds. watch this. >> he walked in my office with a sheet of papers on my hand and threw it down and said that's the script of my presentation at the united nations. it came from the vice president's office. it was junk. it was pure junk. i was in charge of putting it together. >> powell and wilkerson tear up the original 48-page script and start over with a team from the state department and cia. director george tenant suggests they base their presentation on the national intelligence estimate, which unbeknownst to paul is a deeply flawed document. >> we went into a room and he said sit down and he sat down. we were the only two people in the room. he looked at me and said, this bull [ bleep ] of contacts with al qaeda has got to be taken out. >> we found out powell and wilkerson both wanted to take out the al qaeda connection to suddam. so what happened? >> well, it doesn't come out. it remains to be part of the case that -- >> even though they knew it was garbage? >> yeah. and one of the things that's hard to reconcile with is the figure of colin powell in al
know that the u.n. is moving forward on investigation of exactly what happened. we're monitoring the situation ourselves. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game changer from our perspective because once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to stop and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. >> gregg: the general is retired four-star general and fox news military analyst. pleasure to see you. thanks so much. you know, the rebels to overthrow assad desperately need weapons but they need intel. they have to know where the troop movements are. are they getting it in some way? >> they are finally starting to get it from us. i am delighted to see the increased support for the rebels. they are providing intelligence to them. they are downloading from satellite imagery and listening to what the syrian military is doing on the ground. we have enormous eavesdropping capability and we have human intelligence in terms of what is taking place. now that is bees funneled into some of the rebels, not all of t
look at the reform, you will want singapore's ambassador of the u.n. you tried to get india on china vetoes and you tried to take nigeria, the south africans get upset or vice versa. it's never going to happen. >> but you're absolutely right. and that's precisely the problem that for every japan, there's a south kor that says no. all the losers, the mexicos, the pakistans, the south koreas, others actually become winners and they get automatic seat in the security council at every fourth turn. now, that's a remarkable improvement for countries that have to spend millions of dollars to try to get re-elected back to the security council every four years. now, i'm saying, you have a seat. so, it's a win, win, win for the small states, the middle powers and the great powers. that's why i think eventually, not right away, the 777 formula can break the current lock on security council reform. >> great thing about this book, a lot of insight at 30,000 feet and also insight at the ground level because you live through these processes. pleasure to have you on. >> my pleasure. thank you for ha
listened to the u.n. weapons specialists. war is great for selling newspapers, you'll always see a retired general on the air as opposed to a howard zene. was there any mainstream immediate he i can't outlet that you think handled the run up to the war in a respectable manner? >> what's often cited rightly was the knight ridder bureau, whose reporters did not rely on the usual sources unnamed in tells sources. they went out and dug around, so actually were much closer to the truth on what happened. sometimes you had to go to sources in england and europe. there were hundreds of thousands of people in the streets. there also were, you know, a lot of people who editor ally urged caution. it was by no means, you know, a vast majority of people who were ready to go to war when we went to war and there were some media people who did well. i've covered this for 10 years you. mentioned my book, the book actually covers the whole 10 year period that talks about other mistakes the media made over time, not just at the beginning, and, you know, that's it -- as you know, the war did go on for quite a
colin powell made that infamous just outlandish presentation to the u.n., four washington post-columnists cheered him saying there's no debate anymore. sadaam hussein has to be taken out. mainstream media was by far probably the worst failure of the last half century. >> war always good for ratings. i'd like to ask you about what the organization of women's freedom in iraq entails answered what are your thoughts today on this 10 year anniversary? i remember in 2003 when i decided to go back home, and the idea was that this war cannot bring anything good to iraq. you cannot bring anything good by bombing and killing. it's an arsenal of killing that was sent to the other side of the world. women cannot benefit from that. and besides we had the feeling that creating the vacuum in iraq would bring in the bad influences of the region, with some of them that come from saudi arabia, some from iran and that cannot be good for iraqi women. in the previous regime time, which was under a dictatorship, but still women were able to be educated, go to work and i'm an example of that. i was a
holliday, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. security council, thank you. >> thank you. >>> we will talk to hanan a ashrawi. and later george mitchell, he, too, deeply engaged in the peace process. he will be with us as well. >>> this just in to cnn. police in chicago are investigating an early morning shooting at a nightclub that injured at least seven people in chicago. the shooting believed to be gang related. this happened just after 1:00 am at club g's on the city's south side. there had been an album release party for an unnamed rapper. six men and a woman have all been taken to hospitals. none of the injuries appear to be life threatening. no arrests so far. >>> dazzled and concerned. a senate hearing tackles the use of drones within the united states. experts testifying that drones can have practical applications, monitoring crops and livestock, looking at damage to buildings, perhaps. but lawmakers express concern, saying new legislation may be needed to protect americans' privacy and their safety. >> i think there is a real concern that the day-to-day conduct of american citize
. if the u.s. provides $3 billion to israel and it's vetoed out of the u.n. security council this it's unwilling to take us to the finish line and i think we need to internationalize this issue. that's the palestinian responsibility to international jaz it. there's clear support in the u.n. general assembly to do more and better than the u.s. has been able to do. >> again one of the reasons i was so pleased with what we saw with what president obama said and with what the world hear president obama say he severely explained this is what the united states policy is. it begins with israeli children and palestinian children. deserve a better future. how we going give to it them. second the way to do that is two states side-by-side and then third the way to get to two states is the through direct negotiations. you may not agree with that third step. i hope people will. but the fact is we start with what's the best way to achieve what israeli and palestinian parents want for their children and one another. >> is that perfect example of the dual role. the position of direct negotiations is
resolution that gets voted on at the u.n. as we are flying back from the region, back to the u.s. on that trip that you, that we were discussing. we went to paris, we went to paris, egypt and then tunis. and it's in the course of those four days that that decision is made. so the conversation was very much, you know, the french are going to go ahead. we can let them do whatever they want, or we can actually try to shape this into something that is going to deliver people. >> host: i think my favorite chapter in the book is the trip to burma, perhaps because it's might be the most, i think, historical. >> guest: yes. i love that chapter. >> host: and just talk about what made that trip so unique. obviously, not very many people are traveling to burma at least from the united states at that time. >> guest: more and more, but certainly at the time it was very, very novel. you know, it was a very special moment, and it goes back to, um, when you look at the big picture of what, you know, my book will do for readers, this is a book that is several things. it is, you know, my persona
to protect civilians. that's the final resolution that gets voted on at the u.n., as we are flying back from the region, back to the u.s. on that trip that we were discussing, we went to paris. we went to paris, egypt and into this. it's in the course of those four days that that decision is made. so the conversation was very much, the french are going to go ahead. we can let them do whatever they want or we can try to shape us into something that is going to deliver. >> host: i think my favorite chapter in the book is the trip to burma, perhaps because it might be the most historical. >> guest: i love that chapter. >> host: just talk about what made that trip so unique. obvious that not very many people have gone to burma. >> guest: more and more of a string of the time it was very novel. you know, it was a very special moment, and it goes back to when you look at the big picture of what, no, my book will do for readers. is this is a book that is several things. it is, you know, my personal story, my perspective on american power. it is the story of hillary clinton as secretary of state and
conspiracy theorists. they say it's a hoax. it's scientists making up data, it's a u.n. plot to take away american sovereignty and so on. now, that's only 8%. but they're a very well mobilized, organized and loud 8%. and they've tended to dominate the public square, okay. so here you have these six totally different audiences that need completely different types of information and engagement to deal with this issue. so one of the first tasks, and you know this as a communicator as well as i do, one of the first rules of effective communication is, snow know thy audience. if you don't know who your audience is it's kind of like playing darts in a crowded room with the lights off. you might hit the target sometimes, but most times you're going to miss. and unfortunately too often you're going to do collateral damage. you're actually going to hit somebody by mistake and cause a backlash. so you know this is why if we were to do a true engagement campaign in this country we would need to recognize that there are very different americans who need to be engaged in very different ways who have d
was with one of the former heads of the u.n. in iraq begging joe biden to call him as a witness to talk about the lack of wmds in iraq. they refused. so there are key members of this administration, the secretary of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most
saying it has no evidence of chemical weapons used in syria. former u.n. ambassador john bolton joins us. good evening, sir. >> glad to be with you. >> greta: why the confusion? i can see maybe confusion who used the chemical weapons, but why the uncertainty whether chemical weapons are used in syria? >> it depends on what the nature of the chemical weapon is. i'm not sure if we've got people on the ground who can do forensics. >> although chairman rogers, and indeed dianne feinstein chairman of the senate intelligence committee late today have gonna lot further than the white house has. so i think we need to get the facts straight, but it points in the direction of some chemical weapons used. was it the assad regime or the opposition? >> and this is a huge difference if it's chemical weapons. so where do we go from there? president obama that's the red line that can'ti be passed. red lines come and go with this administration and i think that's part of the problem. i think we have to come back to what the basic american interest is here and that makes sure that no chemical weapons get o
the beginning. i thought if there's a reason to invade another country, having to make a case in front of the u.n. assembly doesn't seem like it is warranted. war should be obvious, the reason should be obvious. >> nada bakos, former cia analyst, thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> thank you. >> friday at 9:00 p.m., watch a special replay of hubris, selling the iraq war, followed by talking hubris. >>> coming up, how losing presidential campaigns can lead to a rewarding career as a tv commercial actor. >>> and stephen colbert's sister was a big winner in south carolina. we will have the latest in that congressional race coming up. re. hmm, we need a new game. ♪ that'll save the day. ♪ so will bounty select-a-size. it's the smaller powerful sheet. the only one with trap + lock technology. look! one select-a-size sheet of bounty is 50% more absorbent than a full size sheet of the leading ordinary brand. use less. with the small but powerful picker upper, bounty select-a-size. a talking car. but i'll tell you what impresses me. a talking train. this ge locomotive can tell you exactly wh
't yet reached the red line that i had described in my speech at the u.n. they are getting closer, though. and the question of manufacturing a weapon is a different thing. the president said correctly that we have on these issues, a little arcane. but on these matters, we share information and we have a common assessment. we have a common assessment. in many case, iran gets to an immunity zone when they get through the enrichment process, in our view. in our view. and what ever time is left, there's an lot of time. and everyday that passes, it diminishes it. but we do have a common assessment on these schedules, on intelligence, we share that intelligence. and we don't have any argument about it. i thinki it's important to stat that clearly. i think that people should get to know president obama the way i've gotten to know him. and i think you've just heard something that is very meaningful. it may have escaped you. but it hasn't escaped me. that is the president announced that in addition to all of the aid that his administration has provided, including iron dome, including defense fundi
's intolerable. there's a number of ways they can do that, we're hearing they're going to go to the u.n. security council. but that doesn't really stop it from continuing or escalating. and that's what i think the president's grappling with. >> you do have a very difference response from those on congressional intelligence committees who yesterday were saying there is a high probability that chemicals were used from the obama administration you hear much more of a neutral message. >> that's right, anderson. and the two people we heard in congress are greater among equals, let's say. it's the chairman of the house intelligence committee, mike rogers, and the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee, dianne feinstein. they admitted they had been briefed. this isn't their opinion. and that's an awkward fact for the obama administration. the president is in the region, we're hearing now from officials that it's going to take a couple days for them to determine whether or not a chemical weapon is used. and let's be honest. by then, president obama will be out of the region, safely back here and
prime minister said. >> hasn't yet reached the red line that i described in my speech at the u.n. they're getting closer. >> we do have a common assessment on these schedules, on intelligence. we share that intelligence. and we don't have any -- any argument about it. >> whether you hear that, do you worry that the world may say prime minister netanyahu has cried wolf? he said this was urgent. we had a time and now he is saying wait another year. >> i'm confident that prime minister netanyahu will do everything to defend israel and not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. and i'm also hopeful that president obama will indeed, you know, keep our backs or have our backs as he called it. i think america respects the notion that we can't outsource our security to anyone else. and if push comes to shove, israel will defend itself at any price. we hope that we won't need to get to that and the way to prevent it is to create a viable, a credible threat, a paralyzing threat to iran which we're not there quite yet. >> on the peace process, a very crucial topic here. president obama said, loo
. all the way there in new york where you are. the u.n. security council tonight behind closed doors, ambassadors from around the world, went behind closed doors to discuss the syrian chemical weapons situation. as you noted, it also dominated here in jerusalem. the press conference the president had with the israeli prime minister. he made very clear while this is still being investigated, they plan to hold the syrian regime accountable. take a listen. >> when you start seeing weapons that can cause potential devastation and mass casualties, and you let that genie out of the bottle. then you are looking potentially at even more horrific scenes than we have already seen in syria. and the international community has to act on that additional information. >> the international community has to act. that is the suggestion about action, at least down the road. i spoke a few moments ago to an israeli official here who says their fear in the israeli government is just not about the syrian regime using chemical weapons in the days ahead whether they did or not in recent days. also their chem
matters. the u.n. is not irrelevant. >> citing international law in those days could make you a laughing stock on television, but janine garofalo hung in there, she was ridiculed mercilessly. the prowar world, including republicans and democrats tried to turn her into a lefty hollywood caricature. none of them have ever apologized, even though they now know that she was right and the president of the united states was wrong and his highly trained foreign policy team and war policy team was wrong. >> the problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons, but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> we all remember that howard dean was right about the invasion of iraq and michael moore was right. and when michael moore won an oscar in 2003, in his acceptance speech he spoke of a president, quote, sending us to war for fictitious reasons. and he was booed in hollywood by a large segment of the oscar audience in that theater that night. the long list of actors opposed to invading iraq included diane carol, done cheat h
the issue of chemical weapons. we have called for and we know that the u.n. is now moving forward on investigation of exactly what happened. we're monitoring the situation ourselves. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game changer from our perspective. because once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to stop and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. so we are going to continue to closely consult with everybody in the region and do everything we can to bring an end to the bloodshed and to allow the syrian people to get out of a leader who has lost all legitimacy because he's willing to slaughter his own people. and i'm confident assad will go. it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that. and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people. and by the way, serves the syrian people from all walks of life, from all religious affiliations because one of the things we know is happening in
. we have called for and we know that the u.n. is moving forward on investigation of what happened. we're monitoring the situation ourselves. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game-changer from our perspective. because once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to stop and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. and so we are going to continue to closely consult with everybody in the region and do everything we can to bring an end to the bloodshed and to allow the syrian people to get out of a leader who has lost all legitimacy because he is willing to slaughter his own people. and i'm confident that assad will go, it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that. and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people. and by the way, serves the syrian people from all walks of life. from all religious affiliations. because one of the things we know is happening in this region is that if we fail to c
state and a viable independent palestinian state. >> but israel is already a state. it is u.n. recognized. it is a state. the two-state solution presumes that israel isn't already a state. and abbas has written that he will never recognize israel's sovereignty. and creating a two states will only give them cause to internationalize a legal conflict with israel. >> the reality as we know it now, this is not, i'm not really debating this particular question. it is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who does not truly accept what we call a settlement based on a two-state solution. an independent, viable state. for the palestinians, in the west bank and gaza and occupied east jerusalem in a viable independent israeli state in the very heart of the arab world. you're absolutely correct. israel is an independent state. the question to you and to many israelis, israel must embed itself in its environment. israel must be integrated into the region as a good citizen as long as the palestinians, and i'm both as a scholar of the middle east and also as an american. as long as the
change in iraq. you know, in the glass one-quarter full side, they had elections. the u.n. validated the results. they weren't fraudulent. they were a lot more honest than they were in afghanistan. they have a parliament. the council of representatives. they passed a budget recently. there is political life in iraq. it's--y. it's-- whatever malikis an authoritarian figure but he's nothing like a saddam by anybody's estimation. so i just-- while there are reasons to be concerned in iraq and reasons to worry about the future, i don't think we should paint an entirely dark picture. and i think if you asked iraqis you'd get different perspectives. if you asked the kurds, i think they're glad there was the invasion. they have more autonomy than they've ever had before, having relations with the turks. if you ask the shi'a, they were empowered but there are probably-- despite the fact they're empowered, there are elements that resent the americans. resent the invasion because they were lodged from the top of the pyramid but theyt miss the americans, many of them, because we're not there in
for me. and he talks about how he moved from copy boy to semi reporter at the u.n. burrough, to covering the women's page, to night rewrite to finally being sent to washington as a regional correspondent. that is, covering new york, new jersey, and connecticut. and then finally moving over to cover -- to be part of the bureau where he covered congress. so that had taken 40 years, 20 years in new york, 20 years here. and then he said, i left the times because a new york finance year asked me to start a up in to cover capitol hill. i turned him down and he kept coming back. fortunately i told him, yes, i'm interested. took me six months for them to give me what wanted, which basically was a piece of the action. i would not do this if i did not have an equity interest in it. i spent my life as a reporter. had almost no managerial experience. i had to find an office and a printer and a distributor, and had to hire personnel. the hardest thing was in advertising. it was really harrowing. people tell me, you'll never work harder and never have more fun, and in both cases, that's been true. i w

look good for a press release to be able to say you're getting some progress in the u.n. but the only way we're going to be able to achieve that two-state solution is through direct negotiations. >> abbas has also threatened to report israel to the international criminal court for human rights violations. do you think that overall that this trip is really a lot about sort of managing relationships more than solving problems? >> well, i think the relationships are extremely important. if the palestinians went to the international criminal court, that would set back, i think, the prospects for peace and the two-state solution. i think the president will make that clear. but i do think establishing the personal relationships, talking to the people, very important. the united states will play a critical role and those personal relationships could take you a long way. >> senator ben cardin, always good to see you. thank you for coming on the program. matt, do you have a sense of what the white house would consider a successful trip? >> that's an interesting question. i think if he gets goo

the prophe prophet o. what the president should have done at the u.n. is slammed his fist on the u.n. podium and say, in no uncertain terms to the delegates, the future does not belong to the lowlife murderers who kill innocent americans. [applause] the future belongs to americans who are willing to lay their lies down on the line to protect our right of free speech. and we will never give up that right, just like will never give up our second amendment rights either. [applause] that would have been from our president a message of caring. meanwhile, here at home, our nation is facing what will likely be the biggest nonmilitary crisis in our history. you see, the president has resigned over a war, a war on the young, by putting a $6 trillion more in debt. that is a war on the young. that is in caring about you. that is an caring about your future. that isn't caring about america. because we have enemies are conducting deadly cyber attacks against us, and yet, our president continue to borrow billions of dollars from them. that, too, is conducting a war against the young. that isn't caring abo
